Math for Healthcare Professionals (Paperback)21st April 2009
Math for Health Care Professionals is a comprehensive resource that is
equally effective in the learning environment or for self-study. It is
foundational and assumes no prior knowledge of mathematics or health
care but merges the two topics into the capstone of a complete learning
Designed with clearly defined objectives that allow the user to select the competencies that the group or individual needs, each objective is clearly stated then explained within the book and accompanied by a significant number of practice problems.
Critical thinking skills, rather than rote memorization of formulas, are emphasized. By using pretests printed at the beginning of each chapter each users work can be assessed to determine areas of weakness and helps develop skills within these weak areas.
In the Math in the Real
World feature, health care professionals relate to readers, in their
own words, the importance of math in the health care professions. While
the fundamentals of mathematics are foundational to this book, their
application to health care is emphasized. Drug dosages, intake and
output, weights and measures, temperatures, IV drip rates, and
conversions are emphasized and illustrations of syringes,
prescriptions, medication labels, IV bags, and I and O charts allow the
reader to practice real-life health care skills requiring mathematics.
